Benjamin Moore® Half-Pint Color Samples allow you to "try on" a paint color before you commit to the time and expense of painting an entire room. Interior designers and professional painters do a "brush out" when deciding on color. This entails applying paint to a small section of the wall or several walls to see how the color looks in the actual environment. By sampling a color at home, you'll get the most accurate sense of how the color will actually look in the room. Each of our 8 oz. paint color samples covers approximately one 4' X 4' area with two coats of paint. You can test a number of different colors at a time. You can also paint smaller test swatches on several walls to see how a particular color will look throughout a room under various lighting conditions.
